IXYS' MwT Subsidiary Introduces Three Microwave Monolithic ICs (MMICS), Ultra-Broadband Driver and Power Amplifiers.SANTA CLARA Santa Clara, city, Cuba
Santa Clara (sän`tä klä`rä), city (1994 est. pop. 217,000), capital of Villa Clara prov., central Cuba. , Calif. -- IXYS Corporation (Nasdaq: IXYS) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Wholly Owned Subsidiary
A subsidiary whose parent company owns 100% of its common stock.
In other words, the parent company owns the company outright and there are no minority owners. , Microwave Technology Inc. (MwT), introduced a family of three new MMIC (Monolithic Microwave IC) An integrated circuit used in high-frequency applications such as mobile phones. Also known as "monolithic microwave/millimeter-wave IC," MMICs combine transistors and passive devices (resistors, capacitors, etc. chips (MMA-0220xxx series). These 2-20 GHz ultra-broadband MMIC distributed amplifier Distributed amplifiers are a very resourceful example of distributed circuit design that incorporate transmission line theory into traditional amplifier design in order to arrive at an amplifier with a larger gain-bandwidth product than is realizable by conventional circuits. products are targeted at military and high frequency test instrumentation markets with excellent performance. The applications include Electronic Warfare Noun 1. electronic warfare - military action involving the use of electromagnetic energy to determine or exploit or reduce or prevent hostile use of the electromagnetic spectrum
military action, action - a military engagement; "he saw action in Korea" Systems (EW), Electronic Counter Measures (ECM (1) (Enterprise Change Management) See version control and configuration management.
(2) (Error Correcting Mode) A Group 3 fax capability that can test for errors within a row of pixels and request retransmission. ), EW threat simulator systems, radar, broadband buffer amplifier An analog device that is typically used for impedance matching and signal isolation. For example, a sound card typically uses buffer amps at most of its input and output ports. for frequency source and wideband test equipment, etc.
The first MMIC chip in the family, MMA-022020B, is a broadband medium power driver with output power of 22.5 dBm at 1dB gain compression point. The typical small signal gain is 8dB across the extended frequency band of 1 to 22 GHz. The bias conditions are 7 V and 220 mA. The second chip, MMA-022025B, is a broadband medium power amplifier with output power of 27 dBm at 1dB gain compression point. The typical small signal gain is 7.5 dB across the extended frequency band of 1 to 26 GHz. The bias conditions are 8V and 290 mA. The third chip, MMA-022030B, is a broadband power amplifier with output power of 29 dBm at 2dB gain compression point (28 dBm from 17 GHz to 20 GHz). The typical small signal gain is 6.5 dB across the frequency band. The bias conditions are 9V and 490 mA.
"These ultra broadband MMIC chips demonstrated our excellent MMIC product capabilities and provide customers high performance and user friendly solutions for various applications," said Dr. Greg Zhou, General Manager of MwT. "All three chips are fully matched for input and output and have good gain flatness. The overall gain is over 20 dB when the three chips are cascaded. They are realized by advanced pHEMT technology with excellent reliability and robustness. The MTTF See reliability. of all three chips is over 1E6 hours for ambient temperature at 85 degrees Celsius, making them also suitable for Space and Hi-Rel applications."
Please download data sheets for all three parts for detailed technical information from MwT website www.mwtinc.com and contact MwT sales/marketing for pricing and sample request. Sample quantities of each MMIC are available now and production will start in August 2007. For more information send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
